MORE LIVESTOCK , , Prosperity of South Depends Upon Diversified Farming and Stock Raising. ERADICATE CATTLE TICK TJ South, Adapted to Live Stock Crowing, Should Lead the United 8tates in Production of Cattle Do Not . Import Food Product Keep Money at Home. By a H. ALFORD, Agricultural Ex. tension Department, International Harvester Company of New Jersey. During the last ten years our acre yield increased, but not half as much as the increase in population. We bare all heard the old Dutch proverb quoted before, but we cannot quote it too often: "No grass, no stock; no stock, no manure; no manure, no crops." Holland is almost entirely a grass and stock country, and lands are worth on an average 1500 per acre. These people have found that they can make more out of land from grass and live stock than they can by cultivating it. Unnumbered acres of hill land in the cotton belt are making less than one-third bale of cotton per acre, and at the same time making poverty for those tilling them. The cost of com mercial fertilizer applied annually is appalling. The razor-back terraces, covered with weeds, grass and briars, and the circles and short rows pre vent the use of : labor-saving imple ments. We are sending millions to the Borthern states every year to pay for pork products, dairy products and beef. This money should be kept at borne and deposited in our banks un til they are full to overflowing and the Fate Of interest lowered to, say, six per cent., because of the abundance at money. Then we will have the necessary money to build good roads, to pay good teachers better salaries to teach longer terms, to improve our farms and to build comfortable homes and put telephones and libraries in them. Then our boys and girls will tay on the farm, and we will behold prosperity in every department of the commercial world. The south has an overwhelming ad vantage over every other section in Hve stock raising. We have 'great climatic advantages that permit out Dr. JTalt Butler, Memphis, Tenn., Sec retary Southern Cattlemen's Ai elation. door pasturing and feeding during the whole, or the greater part of the year. "We can obtain large yields of oats, leguminous crops, Johnson and Ber muda grasses, sorghum cane hay, and an abundance of corn for the making of silage, the most economic form of carbohydrates. The keeping of good cattle and the intelligent use of thor oughly good permanent pastures and gracing crops, and the economic use Of the slk and cotton seed meal will make oar lands rich, keep millions of dollars at home that are now tent to Che nosth and west, and make our people prosperous. In the cotton belt ttre stock farm tag baa been avoided mainly for two , reasons: (1) Because all-cotton farm - tag paid better until the toll became poor; (2) because of the cattle tick. Mow, millions of acres are too poor to grow cotton profitably, and we can emaUy eradicate the cattle tick. Since the work of eradicating the tick was Inaugurated, nearly 200,000 square ' miles bare been cleaned for all time; this la an area over three times as large as Alabama. The tick injures the bide, reduces the milk . flow at least ten per cent., makes It very dif ficult to fatten cattle, prevents the In troduction of good cattle to breed up four nauve cacue, lowers ue price oi )our cattle on the markets and de stroys more than enough cattle every )tr to pay for Its eradication. ftha days of tbe tick are numbered. a last tick win be destroyed in a strews, and then the south will' OO a nAKmennnr avatam airwtmil. ! iromlBing prosperity to present I II - 4L uVAw-J-' j----"- We honestly believe we have the best remedv in the world for indigestion and dyspepsia.

They soothe the inflamed stomach, check the heartburn and distress, stimulate, a healthy secretion of the gastric juice, aid in rapid and comfortable digestion of the food and help to quickly convert it into rich red blood, and thereby into flesh, bone and muscle. They relieve stomach distress promptly, and, used regularly for a short time, tend to re store tile stomach to a comfortable, easy-acting, healthy state. They aid greatly to promote regular bowel action. Don't neglect indigestion, for it fre quently leads to all sorts of ills and com plications. The pain and discomfort is not the most unfortunate part. The fact that when the stomach is not acting right, the material needed to repair the wastes that are constantly taking place in the body is not being given to the blood either in the proper condition or fast enough is far more serious. Nothing will cause more trouble than an unhealthy stomach. The blues, debility, lack of strength and energy, constipation, bil iousness, headaches and scores of other serious ailments result from the failure of the stomach to properly dc its work.

Jerie Wilhite HAS GALLATIN FOUND SAME The Answer Is .Found .in the Straightforward Statement of a Gallatin Resident We have been reading week ; after week in the local press of Cookeville citizens who have been rid of distressing kidney and bladder troubles by Doan's Kidney Pille, and we have often wondered whether the same high opinion of this medicine is to be found in our neighbor ing towns. This frank and earnest statement by a well known and respected resident of Gallatin will set this doubt at rest. " ' Mrs. N. D. Bullock, W. Main St., Gallatin, Tenn., says: "I had dizzy and nervous spells and my back ached intensely, showing that my kidneys were out of order. At night I fas restless and in the morningr when I got up, 1 felt all worn out Doan s Kidney Pills restored me to the best of health in a short time." The above is not an isolated case. Mrs. Bullock is only one of many in this vicinity who have gratefully endorsed Doan's f your back aches if your kid neys bother you, don't simply ask for a kidney remedy ask distinctly for Doan's Kidney -Pills, the same that Mrs. Bul- ock had. 50c at all stores.
